Song Of The Day: "Lions Share" by Hermitage Green

Hey guys!

What would you say, if I told you that with this post you'll be finding a new favourite band?

Would you be excited?

I seriously hope so, because I'm super sure that a lot of you are going to be as excited about Hermitage Green, as I am.
When I was introduced to their sound just recently, I got so annoyed with myself for not finding out about them earlier on.

So let's not waste any more time, please let me introduce you to the band's latest track.

"Lions Share" by Hermitage Green

Hermitage Green are a five piece from Limerick, Ireland.
Their Folk-Rock sound is equally brilliant and exciting.

Formed in 2010 after a jam session between friends, the band probably didn't know what turn their career would take.

By gigging in South Africa, Australia, New York, Canada, Dubai, France and more, Hermitage Green built a loyal fanbase, for which they self-released a live album ("Hermitage Green - Live At Whelans") in 2013.

Hermitage Green are:
Dan Murphy (vocals, guitar, dobro, harmonica)
Darragh Graham (banjo, djembe, backing vocals)
Barry Murphy (vocals, bass)
Darragh Griffin (vocals, guitar)
Dermot Sheedy (bodhran)

In 2015 they got signed to Sony Music Ireland, played sold out shows in Ireland and the UK, released two singles and started working on their debut album.
They've played alongside Gavin James, Walking On Cars, The Pogues and more.

March 2016 saw the release of their debut, "Safe Your Soul".

Earlier this month the band released their latest single, "Lions Share", so let's check it out.

"Lions Share" is atmospheric, gripping and everything you'd need a great Folk-Rock track to be.
It gets you moving along to the perfectly timed percussions whilst you're desperately learning the lyrics, so you can sing along.

The lead vocals are one of the most powerful elements of the track- they lead your through the song with so much charisma and expression.

There's a subtle build-up, taking the song from 'atmospheric' to 'intense' in such clever and attention grabbing way.

It's one of those tracks that you can imagining being performed in an arena with the entire crowd singing along to every word.
